UFC UK Division President Marshall Zelaznik said: “The UFC has always been about fan interaction, and we’re delighted to work with our partners at THQ to have our fighters meet the fans, take a picture, and sign a picture or copy of UFC Undisputed 2010, with the added opportunity to win a pair of tickets to UFC 120.

At every single store we visit, one fan will win a pair of tickets to UFC 120, which features Michael Bisping and Dan Hardy in two great match-ups. Both Mike and Dan are in UFC 2010, as are their UFC 120 opponents Yoshihiro Akiyama and Carlos Condit, so I expect the fans will be giving them plenty of advice on how to win in London.”

Alison Fraser, Product Manager for GAME and gamestation said: “We know that our customers are huge UFC fans who continue to play last year’s game and love this new one even more. They will relish the chance to meet some of the elite fighters over the next few weeks. We’re even doing a special price on the game for anyone who hasn’t yet bought UFC Undisputed 2010 and wants to get it signed by the guys on the day!”

Jon Rooke, European Marketing Director for THQ said: “We are extremely excited to be partnering with UFC and the GAME group to give fans of UFC Undisputed 2010 face to face interaction with elite British fighters, such as John Hathaway, Dan Hardy & Michael Bisping.  With increased excitement around the UFC brand in the UK in the run up to UFC 120 we fully expect for UFC Undisputed 2010 to have a second wind at retail and the opportunity for fans to win a pair of tickets to the fight itself is sure to attract a large crowd at each venue on the 8-date tour.”
